Hi my name is Riley Girl.  I am a 2 years old, 10 pounds of sweetness. I  am a Chihuahua and perhaps Shiba Inu  mix.   My foster mom says I am a very easy dog to live with.    I get along with  dogs and people and I am very polite.  If another dog wants my toy I share.  I am a dainty little eater and I eat out of my own bowl and don’t try to sneak food from the other dogs’ bowls.

I am a pretty quite dog n ow.  I used to bark a lot but we been working on that.  Every now and then when I hear a really strange noise I will bark.  But once I get used to my surroundings I don't bark very much.  I  no longer bark at the dogs next door  even when they bark am me. 

I play with other dogs but mostly I love to sit on laps and snuggle.  I am a bit tentative around new folks and big dogs. Once I know you I love to be near you.  But I am not pushy.  If you want me to sit on the floor or next to you instead of in your lap that is okay with me.  As long as I get a bit of attention I am pretty happy.  I sleep in a dog bed or in your bed at night and can sleep in a kennel but I prefer to be outside of the kennel.

I have been spayed, microchipped and have my shots updated.  So I am ready to go to my forever home.  Do you have a place for me?  I don’t take up much room. Will you promise to be my forever home?  I was found on the streets and I never want to go back there.  I really need a forever home where I feel safe and loved. 

My adoption fee of $175.00 helps with the medical needs of the rescue.  

About Help a Dog Smile

About Our Rescue Group...

Help A Dog Smile is a 501c3 non-profit Arizona corporation and member of PACC911. We are a group of volunteers who all have regular, full time jobs.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptions can be arranged by appointment or our dogs can be met on Saturdays at Petsmart, 7th Avenue & Bell Road in Phoenix 11am - 4pm.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption is a lifetime commitment. After an application and a verbal interview is completed and it is determined that the adoption is a compatible match, a contract is signed with specific guidelines. A nominal fee (usually between $175-$300) to help off-set medical, feeding and Rescue costs is collected. The contract states that at any time the adoption does not work out, the dog is to be returned to our Rescue group for alternate placement. The dog is not to be 'given away' or 'rehomed' or 'taken to the pound'. If there are other dogs in the home, they must meet prior to adoption. All family members in the household have to agree to the adoption. No dog is to be adopted as a 'gift'. No out of state adoptions.
